Storyline

A sassy parrot and a free-spirited librarian upend the well-ordered life of a solitary man. Lyman (Jackson Hurst) is a loner, working the graveyard shift for the Courtesy Patrol. Orphaned by a car wreck that killed his parents when he was four years old, he knows only his last name and approximate year of birth. When a green parrot flies in to his trailer and announces, 'Shut up!" and "I'm an eagle!" he becomes obsessed with finding its owner, which leads him to FIONA (Rachel Nichols). She has been eying Lyman from a distance and decides to help with his parrot search, whether he wants her to or not. Along with her basset hound, they set out on a quest to find the bird's previous owners and Fiona begins to unravel the mysteries of Lyman's past. But when Fiona joins Lyman on his nightly rounds, she witnesses a reality more intense than the romantic version she had envisioned. Ultimately, once Lyman is able to reconcile with is past, he is able to break free of his dark world and they ... Written by Anonymous

Do not miss this gem.
22 September 2012 | by (Clermont, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I just can't say enough about this great little indie jewel. All the actors shine, the production values are superb and the normal compressions and compromises inherent in bringing a sparkling novel to the screen have been thoughtfully and artfully chosen. Sure, all we jaded film fans have seen it before, just not always this heartfelt and fun. This film left me wanting more, in the good way.

I highly recommend this for those who want to share a moving experience with someone special. Even better share this with someone you want to become special.

This film is virtually bereft of objectionable content. Younger children may become invested in characters that suffer the vicissitudes of temporal existence. There are some suggestive situations. Parents may want to preview the movie before sharing it with the family. That said, a very rewarding film. Highly recommended!
